Good morning! Today, on The Meter we will discuss a week of historical events as we remember 2 of America's most endeared presidents, JFK and Abraham Lincoln. Democrats in the US Senate employ the so called "Nuclear Option", abolishing the filibuster on judicial nominees. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Dick Durbin, Chuck Shumar, Barbara Boxer, and Harry Reid sparked complete outrage in 2005 when Senate Republicans explored the idea under President Bush. Hypocritical? How will this historical change affect the future of the Senate? In Geneva, US Secretary of State John Kerry, announced a historical agreement with Iran lifting sanctions on that country that allows Iran to develop nuclear energy. Both sides claim victory and and a peaceful future against the protest of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Was this the right move for the US and the world? In Warsaw, Poland the annual climate change summit was held has coal producers were demonized and the question of reparations was raised. Should the US pay third world countries reparations for storms they claim is caused by human activity. Please join the discussion at 10:00 AM. Your input is essential.
